      Hero wins $8.88 (net +$4.38)

      Shovi lost $2

      Villain is TAG, regular, I often play with him on NL10 and NL20 aswell(I sometimes open 2-3 NL10 tables if there are not enough NL20 tables).Preflop, I open A8o from CO, BB is huge fish, BU and SB are tight playrers so I expect them to fold often and to play IP with the fish sometimes. Flop is standart Cbet, and I decided to 3barrel bluff him if he flats the flop, expecting him to fold AQ-KQ to 3barrel.He is straightforward player, so he will raise TT and 22 on the flop, and he dont call with QTo pre, maybe only QTs which are 2 combos on the flop.After the call I put him basicly on KQ, AQ and QJ(AK 3bets pre, K9 folds pre, very small amount of flushes in his range, maybe max 3 combos or something, A2s, A3s), and some random floats, and everything will fold to 3barrel anyway,exept QJ maybe.So is this okay, aswell as the sizings?

      Also, if I had AQ-KQ in this spot, can I Vbet him 3 streets?Because with the above said, I don't think I can, and with that I would have no idea how to continue on this turn(if I had AQ-KQ) after the Cbet( cuz on the river with 3 barrel I will isolate myself)???

      Hello LSFC4ever,

      Check/Fold the flop cause it one of the worst to ever consider CBetting, if you get called you practically have 0 equity there, nor of course I don't really like to 3barrel vs a known as just a REG guy who could easily even call you down there with Qx.

      I am curious what makes you think that it's a standard CB? :)

      Best Regards.
